Stayed for one night, was mostly empty and we had a camp ground to ourselves close to main office. Kitchens very clean and adequate as were the shower very clean and plenty of hot water. Staff very friendly but we were woken at 01:00 and endured a large group of young drunk and verbally abusive Americans. They were rapping and...

Hi Jan, First let me thank you for your kind words regards staff and facilities. I am sorry your stay was disturbed by other guests and once we were made aware of the situation they were spoken to and we had no further problems from them. We do not have staff patrolling the grounds all night however a phone is...

Unfortunately during our stay, it was cloudy and foggy. No mountain view at all. But that is the thing when you go to mountainous area. Unpredictable. We regret spend our time in west coast. Maybe we should go to East Coast instead. I don't understand the rave about spectacular west coast drive but that could be because we didn't have...

Good parking, Had two entry points into room, lovely modern bathroom. Shared kitchen which was well equipped. Would be nice if more tea towels and cloths were supplied as we didn't like using one supplied as it was dirty. Great family area in dining room for eating and watching T.V.

Hi, Thanks for the kind words but sorry to hear that your tea towel supplied was not clean. Hopefully you came to office and were supplied with a clean one

Booked a powered site for 2 nights. Strangely, we weren't given a specific plot so it was first come first served. This caused a little chaos especially when you need to take your van into town and other places. Each time we came back, we had to find a site. Also, tents were using powered sites which meant we couldn't...

We stayed here for one night, wouldn't have stayed any more. we had one of the executive rooms with ensuite. It was clean but had a strong smell of cleaning product. Because sand flies are a problem you need to close the windows at night but then it gets hot and stuffy. The bathroom was a tight squeeze so wouldn't...

It didn't take long until we regretted our decision to stay. The Top 10 Holiday Park properties provide everything from camping spots, RV parking areas, to simple lodges with shared kitchen. Our lodge room was basically a simple hostel private room with a bunk bed and a queen bed with barely enough room to move around. The shared kitchen area...

We camped in a tent at this Top 10. The pitch was fine - plenty of room for our tent and other pitches seemed equally sized. There are a large number of facilities here including 2 kitchens, 2 dining areas and a TV room. The games room and trampolines seemed a bit tired if you were taking children there and...

It was an average experience for us...nothing extravagant... Basic park with basic facilities... Only good thing was the view from the park....even roads are not done properly...will probably never visit it again... Or if so only for a brief stay

Great location to base yourself from. 5 minute drive into town where the restaurants are. Staff are friendly and helpful. The room was quite small but was clean and tidy and it was very well priced as we booked last minute. Bathroom was very compact. They have spas onsite which can be a bit hard to find and you have...
